Thanks everyone! The male chased the female away from the nest all night, even when she was submissive. At one point the male wandered off and the female swam to the nest and started checking it out, all the sudden she destroyed half of it
! She was like,"Take that then!", lol. This morning they were ignoring each other but the male had repaired the nest and I made sure they hadn't spawned while I was asleep. I decided to leave them together while I was at work. I wasn't expecting anything to happen so I was very surprised to come home to eggs and a very skinny female. I was afraid I was going to disturb the male removing the her but he didn't seem to mind. I've got a towel over the tank now and will put a dim light on the tank tonight so he can see. So far he's being a good daddy.
